And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. John 8:9
Jesus is asked what should be done to a woman who was caught in the act of adultery. The intent of the accusers was to entrap Jesus. Would he condemn her to be executed and defile the law of Moses or will he show mercy? The accusers were forced to face their own motives and behaviors.
